Babolat Pure Drive Lite 2018
With the 2018 version of the Pure Drive Lite, Babolat keeps a good thing going. Like past versions of the Pure Drive Lite, this racquet is perfect for improving beginners and strong juniors. It should also appeal to the intermediate player who wants a user-friendly entry point into the speed, spin and power of the Pure Drive series. For 2018, Babolat updates the Pure Drive Lite with FSI Power. This technology includes diamond shaped grommet holes and wider string spacing, giving this racquet a little more power, spin and comfort than the previous version. The Pure Drive Lite also gets updated with Babolat's latest Cortex dampening system, which deploys a specialized rubber material for an even more arm-friendly feel at ball impact. From the baseline, the Pure Drive Lite moves through contact with remarkable ease. As a result, less advanced players will find it easier to generate the stroke speed needed for effective pace and spin. Spin is further enhanced by this racquet's open 16x19 string pattern, making this an obvious choice for the burgeoning topspin player or anyone who could use easy access to spin. At net, this racquet's fast feel will not only enable you to react quickly to incoming shots, but it has enough power for hitting piercing volleys. Finally, players looking to serve more aggressively should love how fast this stick moves through contact. With some impressive updates to the overall feel and comfort, the Pure Drive Lite continues to be a great option for the improving player who wants an easy path to pace and spin.
For this new generation of the iconic Pure Drive, Babolat has enhanced the legendary power on every shot that competitive, demanding players have come to expect from this racket, while offering the best possible feel through a unique management of vibrations and unrivaled comfort. Two key Babolat innovations make it possible: FSI Power and Cortex Pure Feel.
- FSI POWER :- Players need to sustain power in any situation against every type of opponent. The new Pure Drive includes an optimized FSI Power string pattern and new diamond grommets to provide a larger sweet spot. The result is maximum power on every shot, even when off-centered. Babolatâ€™s FSI Power gives players the necessary confidence to attempt everything on court, and more importantly, to perform at their highest level.
- Cortex Pure Feel :- The brandâ€™s vibration absorption technology, Cortex, provides useful information to players, bringing sensations closer to the hand. Thanks to a bold technological partnership, the new Pure Drive features an evolution of this concept to achieve an optimal feeling.
- Babolat has joined forces with SMAC, an innovative French aerospace company excelling in an industry that needs power but also minimal vibrations, just like the Pure Drive in tennis. The result is better vibration dampening thanks to new material integrated in the graphite of the racket that provides an incredible sound and more direct feel during the game.
